COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish. Layering UK Target hops in the boil adds a pleasant, earthy complexity while higher fermentation temperatures enhance the overall flavor with fruity esters. An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex – Double Stout.

Jet black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. Bitterness on the palate is noticeable but still restrained a bit and has a nice smoothness. Good beer, have yet to try a Green Flash that I didn’t like.

Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Black color with a creamy, decent brown head. Soft aromas of toffee, coffee and bread. Great flavors of burned malt, with an oily addition of coffee, which turns pleasantly bitter in the end. Earthy, breadish flavors give this beer a warming and recognizable character. Carbonation is unusal high, making this even fuller-bodied, by adding a refreshing, slightly metallic note to the beer. Coffee goes along with underlying hints of plums and raisins, giving the beer a bodacious ending. Mouthfeel is troughout silky, smooth, with a long ending, which adds a notable bitterness, absorbing the otherwise too present malt-sweetness. As the beer warms up, spicy hints of alcohol, still well included in the overall taste, become present. Misses a little more balance, but becomes more interessting, course of the high carbonation, which makes this a very refreshing, active stout.

Aroma is hoppier than most stouts. I was expecting that from Green Flash. It also has some raisin, plum, booze and an earthy scent. Appearance is black with an off-white clingy ring of foam. Taste is roasty, hoppy, not very complex but good. Palate was disappointing. Way more watery than a 99 rated imperial stout should be. Overall good but not great. Might buy again, won’t go out of my way to look for it.

Bottle. Black colour, with an enormous brownish head that last for long good while and leaves a milky lace. My first thouhgt was "What’s that horrible smell? It’s like smelling ink. Now, just leave it aside for a while and it opens to chocolate, vanilla, coffee, liquorice, raisins, brandy... and milk. A really creamy palate, plus a medium to full body makes you really enjoy it. Taste is as smell: milk chocolate, vanilla, raisins, brandy, coffee. Really great.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 Bottle. Pours a pitch black brew with cream-like texture - awesome! Lovely thick and dense brown longlasting head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, espresso and fruity yeast. Flavour is bitter and roasted with sweet chocolicious malts. Nice balance. Notes of licorice aswell. Smooth and creamy texture. I really enjoyed this one..

hivemind (933) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Tap @ Pony w Streets. Fuck you James. Pours black with slightly red hue and tan to brown head. Aroma heavy on coffee and nuts (hazelnut, walnut). Tempted to believe this is the double coffee stout but I’m going by what the menu says here. Medium mouthfeel and flavors of nuts, coffee, touch of dark, bitter chocolate. Roasty. Kind of tastes like a brown ale. Good.

ExpendableHero (932) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Black beer with a muddy brown head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, and some smoke. Tastes of dark chocolate, some bitter hops, some roasted coffee flavors, dark licorice, and some burnt/smoky notes. Finish is ashy/chalky, dry, and chocolatey. Silky smooth, yet oily at the same time. Full bodied, robust beer. Very good stuff, worth seeking out.
